A Directory of Goal Based Approaches to Education. 1982 Update.
Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.
In this update, 49 more goal-based programs are added to the 50 programs described in the directory's initial 1981 edition. The programs are goal-based in that they make use of such concepts as minimum competency testing, mastery learning, and continuous progress curricula, among others. As in the initial edition, each program receives a one-page entry giving a program description, a summary of its "situation" or setting, the program highlights, the name of a contact person, and the type of assistance available to persons interested in the program. The update adds programs in 4 of the 5 educational levels distinguished by the initial edition: elementary programs (11 new listings), high shool programs (13 new listings), K-12 programs (20 new listings), and adult education programs (5 new listings). Seven updated indexes are provided, listing all 99 programs in both editions numerically, alphabetically, by state of location, by the scope of the area served (statewide, districtwide, school, classroom, or course), by the size of the population served, by 12 curricular subject areas, and by type of program highlights in 5 areas (goals or competencies, instruction, assessment, management, and community involvement). An eighth index lists contact persons alphabetically. (RW)
